I visited Antigua for a weekend for a friend's wedding. The wedding was at Porta Hotel so we decided to stay there for convenience. The location was great, walking distance to all the sights in town and Parque Central where restaurants and bars are. The hotel has done a very good job on preserving colonial infrastructure and mixing it with... More

This was an excellent hotel. It is located about ten minutes from the city center in Antigua. The hotel is spread out, so some walking may be necessary. The pool looked very inviting! The restaurant and bar were very good - and the food was excellent. There is an ATM in the hotel, which was very useful. There is filtered... More

We enjoyed everything about this hotel. Its within walking distance of the central square and rooms are well equipped. We had dinner here on both nights and the dishes were tasty and well presented. Breakfast is excellent and on a level what you would get at a five star hotel. Staff are friendly but not many speak English – not... More

After surviving a long bus trip, it was a pleasure to drive into a Spanish colonial town, and find a beautiful, walled hotel in the center of everything. The rooms were decorated in the Spanish tradition, even though the hotel is fairly new. We stayed by the lap pool, in a courtyard, very private but removed from the main hotel.... More

This hotel was everything we hoped for. The building is beautiful, the scenery is amazing and is just 3 blocks away from the central park. I would go back anytime. The swimming pool was clean and the papagallos that are taken out in the mornings are beautiful. They have a nice playground for the little ones and the food in... More

There is no variety in customer base and hotel like any mid-range resort in Arizona or New Mexico in the US. Why come to Antigua filled with great little hotels and stay in a place like this?. The staff knows what they should do in case of special requests but are too afraid to do so, big resort/tight management disease.... More

The hotel grounds are beautiful and the setting is prime. The hotel is a few blocks from the town square and sits at the base of the Volcan Agua. The rooms are gorgeous and each has a large terrace overlooking the inner courtyard. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner buffets are amazing! The variety and number of options is overwhelming. Service is...

Beautiful, spotless hotel, spacious rooms and baths, nice buffet dinner and breakfast with wide array of choices, including local fare. Walking distance to local attractions. I have stayed in this hotel two different times, and prefer it to other local hotels. Very quiet atmosphere, beautiful grounds, nice pool.
